Owl City Pt. I
An Observant Owl brings you pictures closest to his heart in a two part series. This week again two galleries are being released and the common thread between them (if you haven’t guessed already) is the owl’s favourite hunting ground - the city of Calcutta.
Northern part of the city is dotted with Raj-baris or mansions that are the living, breathing testimony of the city’s glorious past. Gaining access to these houses is a slow and painstaking process that requires patience and sensitivity.
This has been this owl’s longest running and perhaps permanent project - documenting the old houses of Calcutta. The gallery offers a few highlights. You can browse the gallery here:
